cooling down next week. only mid-70s in the warmest location. let's check traffic with elizabeth. >> thank you. highway 4 slow especially right there as you pass a street. actually slow all the way into pittsburg right now. crossing the benicia bridge, traffic looks great on southbound 680 all the way into martinez. and in fact we are so friday light this morning, they have not turned on the metering lights at the bay bridge so should be a nice smooth easy compute, a gift on friday the easy commute into the city. lower deck traffic looks good. san mateo bridge this is the commute direction and yeah, the picture tells the story. looks great all the way towards the high-rise. foster city. and if you are heading towards the east bay, heading towards hayward, looks good eastbound, as well. about a 14-minute drive in either direction. the nimitz back out to the east bay. 880 through oakland, northbound and southbound traffic, quick easy ride all the way down
6:47 am
towards hayward. knee is golden gate bridge, this camera has been dealing -- the golden gate bridge, the camera has been dealing with fog, visibility an issue. sluggish approaching the pay gates. northbound traffic going against the commute is fine. mass transit is all on time. so far no delays for bart, ace, muni metro and caltrain. remember kcbs, our radio partners, at 740-am and 106.9- fm. back to you. >> thank you. markets around the world are reacting to this morning's job report from the labor department. here now is jason brooks with kcbs and jason, we just saw all the indices looking down this morning. >> reporter: and this is not the news we wanted to see this morning. it's incredibly disappointing and really a surprise. we had gotten communications that the job market seemed to be picking up. private payroll processor adp is looking for a gain of 157,000 jobs in the private sector. but as it turns out, according to the labor department, only a
6:48 am
gain of 57,000 privately labor jobs but then the public sector cut 39,000 jobs so you wind up with a net gain of only 18,000 jobs. that was less than in may which was only 25,000. very weak numbers. need to see at least 125,000 new jobs each month just to keep up with new people coming into the workforce. as a result of all of that the unemployment race rose from 9.1 to 9.2% and the underemployment rate including those who are working part time and would rather work full time that rose from 15.8 to 16.2%. now, other things like average weekly earnings and they were flat for last month and if you lack back over the past d.c. will be back over the past year, weekly earnings are up only 1.9% compared to the consumer price index which is up 3.6% mainly from higher gas and food costs so paychecks are not keeping up with inflation. and weak jobs don't bode well for the economy.
6:49 am
that's the why the market is nervous about that this morning. let's look at the numbers. and it's not good but it could be worse. the dow right now lower by 107 points. nasdaq is down by 22. the s&p off by 13. this after a couple of weeks of strong gains. the dow was basically right on top of a high for the year. we need to see the job market pick up to feel better about the economy. manufacturing has gotten better but there are big concerns today. >> thank you, jason brooks with kcbs and major talks about the federal deficit in washington, d.c. and here in the bay area, scathing report about a billion- dollar transit project in san francisco. let's get some insight from our political insider phil matier and former assembly speaker and san francisco mayor willie brown. >> hold that thought. hold that thought. good morning! >> good morning. >> this is one of the most interesting story we had just about every year. it's called the debt ceiling.
6:50 am
[ laughter ] >> my next question to you is you want to talk about political speak. [ laughter ] >> debt ceiling. okay? ceiling implies going up. things are getting better. when you go in debt you're in a hole! you're going deeper in the hole! >> that is true, phil. where did the debt ceiling come from i think is your credit cart. you have a certain limit on your credit card. that is your debt ceiling. you can incur that much debt. >> but what i find interesting is the change of the wording from debt limit to debt ceiling implies something positive. oh, we are just going to raise the ceiling. >> and that's all we ever do. >> what i find also fascinating is the number. we are talking about $14.5 trillion. that's the debt ceiling. and what they are arguing about in washington isn't whether to pay it off well. >> no. they are not talking about paying it off. it's how much more can we spend. >> when they are talking about obama and guys sitting around
6:51 am
talking about we are going to face catastrophe it's like you sitting down with your wife and saying we are marked out on the credit card we need to get more credit. >> that is correct. we need to go back and talk to china and say, how about sending over some more money that you have gotten from all the things you have made that we've bought? that's what this deal is, phil. believe me, you can't run government without it because you can't do government on a cash basis. >> wait a minute. it doesn't seem fair when cities have to do it, they have to balance. states have to do it. they have to balance. we just had that. or they don't get their paycheck. the feds sit around and argue about let's raise the limit. >> northern of the other units of -- none of the other units of government have the responsibilities that the federal government has. you don't have to engage in three wars. you don't have to do the number of other things. >> you don't get to print your own money. >> that is correct. that's -- by the way, print and sign their own money. they not only print it. they sign it, too.
6:52 am
you get prosecuted for doing it. they don't. >> if i signed the money it's called bouncing a check. >> that's usually -- and you get prosecuted and that's usually the way it happens. so you know, but you have to raise the debt ceiling. you have to in order to keep government working. otherwise, government cannot borrow the money it needs to close the cash flow -- >> we'll go into that later. right now, right now, speaking of cash flow and oh, the wig hole in san francisco they are starting to dig the central subway grand jury report scathing says we can't afford it that basically you're building the golden gate bridge underground. >> well, let me tell you. >> cost $1.4 billion. that's going nowhere. it was your idea. >> not just my idea! hopefully it's going to be one of my achievements, one of my living achievements. anytime you do a capital project of that size and in that way, you are going to be criticized for it for a long
6:53 am
time until it's done. when it's done, and it starts to be used, people are going to say, i don't know why we didn't do this a long time ago. [ pause ] >> you're saying that with a straight face. >> it is the truth. [ laughter ] >> what's going on over there? >> you'll do anything for a ribbon-cutting. i'll leave it at that. >> so phil, i'm guessing you're in the a big fan of the project then? >> i have questions about it because every time we have these reports that people take a look at it. they say they can't afford it, it's probably going to stretch muni to the breaking point but every politician in this city -- >> first and foremost. >> -- from nancy pelosi on down have signed off on this. >> and nancy has been very helpful because most of the money for the central subway comes from the feds and the state. the city is almost not in at all. we don't raise the debt ceiling we won't be able to afford it. >> i know where you're going. >> you're going to hear a lot more about this. stay tuned, sunday morning 7:30. we are going to hear in these guys. thanks for coming in.
6:54 am

e two more survivors of the fishing boat sinking in the gulf of california are expected back in san jose within the next hour. the two have been planning to drive the truck belonging to one of the victims leslie yee but the truck broken down near the u.s./mexico border so they took a greyhound bus that is expected to arrive in san jose with minutes. four our survivors returned to novato yesterday. one of them blamed the boat's captain for its sinking saying the captain gave life vests to the crew not passengers. investigators in mexico say the captain did everything he could to save everyone on board. seven men still missing. this could be the final countdown or maybe not for nasa's space shuttle program. as of now atlantis is set to launch from cape canaveral florida at 8:26 this morning our time. but rain and thunder in the sunshine state may force
6:58 am
postponement. live pictures outside of the shuttle. the astronauts are inside waiting to hear whether or not they are about to launch. chances are that the launch will happen as scheduled -- only 30%. so the chance is not so good. it is not clear when nasa is going to make a decision. for now, the astronauts just standing by. to minutes now before 7:00. quick check on your friday and weekend weather forecast. >> it's looking good. looking like lots of sunshine today and we'll have plenty of sunshine for the weekend as well but cooler the start of a cooling trend. today temperatures still in the mid-90s inland low 70s around the bay and 60s at the coast with sun breaks then cooling down for the weekend. significant cooling making our way into monday and tuesday. by wednesday, check this out a 20-degree drop in temperatures in the warmest locations. so get outside and enjoy the hot weather today. how's traffic, elizabeth? >> traffic is great. it's a friday. so it looks like a lot of people are taking today off. bay bridge toll plaza no delay heading into san francisco. they finally turned on the
6:59 am
metering lights about half hour later than we typically see so really looks great all the way across the upper deck. i'm going to try to show you one more map. maybe i'm not? well, there is a stall on westbound 580 approaching north greenville road. so it's causing a little bit of extra traffic as you pass that. but overall about a 25-minute drive time out of the altamont pass towards pleasanton and the dublin interchange. >> thank you. a lot of stories that we are watching in the day ahead including the shuttle launch. we'll keep you posted on that as well as the two survivors returning to san jose this morning. thanks for joining us for the cbs 5 "early edition." and we would love you to join us for the "weekend early edition." my producers are saying i can do some shameless self promotion saturdays at 7 a.m. and sundays with phil matier at 7:30. thank you so much for joining us. have a wonderful weekend.
